This is not a site called JUNK IN YOUR FACE.
Please do not make profile picture close ups of your private areas.
They make the site look like a porn site and it is not.

Has anyone seen or heard anything lately about the sand slurry pipeline?
In case you have never heard of it, there is a 3.5 mile long pipeline that runs from Gunnison to an area south of South Beach. You may have noticed the black hoses laying in the sand along the ranger access road. And those little huts next to the road are pump-booster stations. That's all part of the pipeline. The rest of it is underground.
The pipeline project was planned to counter sand erosion at the "critical zone," where at some point Sandy Hook would breach.
I found some records that it was first used in 2010. To use it, they set up a huge crane on the beach and pump for about 50 days, sometime between October and February. I think the original plan was to use it every other year or so.
I imagine some of us would have noticed a giant crane at Gunny. So I suspect the pumping operation has not been done recently. Perhaps not since 2010? Or was it damaged by Sandy and not yet repaired? I can't find any mention of it.
I am curious because the beach at Gunny seems like it gained even more sand this winter. I wonder if we are seeing that because they are not able to use the pipeline. And does that mean the critical zone is getting narrower and closer to a breach? (breach = no access to Gunny)
Interesting New York Times video on the state of nipple rights for women. NY is the epicenter for the fight over boob liberty.
Our society is facing a contradiction. Men are free to expose their nipples in public in all 50 states. Women are prohibited from doing the same in 49 states.
Naturist Action Committee: Anti Nudity Rule in Oregon State Forests
The Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) is proposing several changes to their rules (laws basically) for state forests. One of the changes will ban nudity in many “Designated Recreation Areas.”
Now this is what I call healthy competition!!
Thank you ladies (and their partners) for keeping the fun going!!
Let the exhibitionistic and voyeuristic fun continue!! Hopefully soon, it will all be "live" at Gunnison!!
North path ok south a lake.
Lots of birds on sand bars.

Really, only 60 more days to Spring.
Today has got to be the most entertaining and "productive" day, thanks to our naughty friends sunbum, punkrella, hpnakedcpuple and liz and john!!
Love your attitude and spirit!!
And thanks for watming us all on this otherwise cold day!!
Hope to see you guys at gunni in spring/summer!!
It's too hot!! Needed some air. That's why naked in the parking lot in this freezing weather
Looks like a nice storm is blowing in.
I hope everyone stays nice, safe and warm. Spring is comming.
I spent some time reading through a lot of the first time experiences here on the forum. That is a great resource for newbies to shake off concerns. After only a couple days spent at Haulover last fall (and my/our only experience at a c/o beach), I can wait to check out Gunnison this summer and see how it compares. Hopefully some long day trips are possible as well sprinkled througout the season. It's a 4+ hour drive but looks to be well worth it.
Whats the best dates to go to the beach? Taking into account events that may be going on locally or prices of hotels? I was figuring a during the week visit. What do you all think the best month/weeks would be?
